Come and explore the history that Picton has to offer; such as Macaulay House, located in Macaulay Heritage Park, which showcases items that range from Aboriginal to the Loyalist arrival in 1784. Downtown, settled in the heart of Picton at The Victory (formally the Picton Post Office), is a gallery for the Canadian Society of Marine Artists.
Just a few doors down sits a gallery run by local Prince Edward County artists: Arts on Main Gallery. The gallery will dazzle you with all sorts of mixed media on display for enjoyment and purchase. East Main Street, you will find Branch 78 of the Royal Canadian Legion, home of the Picton Pipe Band, Celtic Dancers and the Legion's War Museum.

About the Picton Recreation Committee Walking Circle
The walking circle idea was conceived originally to connect the Millennium Trail to the downtown area and at the same time address a common question asked by trail walkers: "How do we get back to our car without retracing our steps?" We added our routes to accommodate a wider range of walking interested. Picton's walking circle is the first of several under consideration by the County communities to connect our "downtowns" with the Millennium Trail or, in places not located adjacent to that trail, then to other trails nearby. Finally, after your walk, you will find a warm welcome and tasty, nutritious fare at any of the several cafés nearby. Happy walking - and Enjoy!
